They allowed the 12 most QB hits(in the pocket) and the teams that allowed more have poor olines and they do not have the luxury of a mobile QB(less GB if you consider Rodgers).
I think its a top half (16) NFL o-line. The fact that we had almost zero injuries was mongo for their success as well, obviously.

I am not saying they are hall of famers (well, Williams could be over time), but they arent crap either. You are deriding them, which is ludicrous.
